VAN HALEN Performs ‘Hang ‘Em High’ In Boston

Fan-filmed video footage of VAN HALEN performing the song “Hang ‘Em High”, from the band’s 1982 album “Diver Down”, this past Sunday (March 11) at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts can be seen below.

According to online fan reports, VAN HALEN previously soundchecked “Hang ‘Em High” and the 1979 classic “Bottoms Up!” on March 5 in Philadelphia but didn’t include either track in the set until yesterday.

VAN HALEN‘s new album, “A Different Kind Of Truth”, sold 187,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.

“A Different Kind Of Truth” is the band’s first full-length offering with original singer David Lee Roth since “1984” was released in January 1984.

Roth exited the group in 1985, a year after its “1984” album was released. According to Billboard.com, “1984” spent five weeks at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 — VAN HALEN‘s highest charting set with Roth. (1996’s “Best Of Volume 1” hits album, which included two new songs with Roth, debuted at No. 1 with 233,000 sold in its first week.)

VAN HALEN‘s other four other No. 1s were their four studio albums with Roth‘s replacement, Sammy Hagar: “5150” (1986), “OU812” (1988), “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” (1991) and “Balance” (1995).

VAN HALEN‘s previous all-new album, 1998’s “Van Halen III”, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart and was certified gold for sales of 500,000 copies, a disappointment compared to their previous platinum efforts.
